Marge and Homer Are........Co-Workers!
3 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is the seventh episode of the fourth season of the Simpsons and in my opinion, it may be the weakest episode this season to date, but only by a hair. It just doesn't seem the storyline is as strong as the previous episode. However, I did like the reference to the "boy who cried wolf," legend and how the episode took a literal meaning to that myth.

In this episode, "Marge Gets a Job," the Simpsons house has foundation issues which requires money that they don't have. Marge decides to work at the power plant, where she becomes a victim of sexual harassment by Mr. Burns. Meanwhile, in order to fake out from taking exams, Bart decides to fake sickness. But on the third try, that faking may actually become reality.

Overall, this is solid episode on the whole. I loved the subplot involving Bart. But the main plot with Marge isn't as strong. It just shows how much of a creep Mr. Burns is. I did love the cameo by Tom Jones though. I rate this episode 8/10.
